I have an oily residue in my washer machine and my clothes how do I fix it

If its not from heavily soiled clothes like garage overalls then I would bet the drum bearing seal has gone and bearing grease is contaminating your wash. See if there is any water dripping underneath from the seal and if this seems to fit with your situation then you need a good DIY fixer or appliance engineer to have a look at it.

Your problem is a bearing of inner tub may also need spider assembly caused by overloading using non HE detergent 0r to much soap if noise gets worst it will take out seal and will start leaking thru-back side under stater motor that you call generator
Remove stater drum by holding inner drum and taking rear nut of stater drum after removing drum UN plug wire connections remove 4 bolts holding coil . then remove front of washer remove all counter waits remove all bolts from outer tub remove shocks remove springs and drain and vent hoses pull out the whole basket from unit pull tub in half remove inner tube Pop out both bearings back and front replace with new bearing and seal reverse back together same way you take apart may take 2 people heavy stuff

Washer has begun to sound like a four wheel drive vehicle going down the highway at 60 mph. The matching dryer had been squeaking and now has begun a thumping sound.

if it sounds like a jet plane taking off its the drum bearings and you need to replace these bearings,if your lucky you can find just the bearings and lip-seal,if not you will need to but the tub with the front bearing installed already and this gets expensive,otherwise to just replace these bearings and seal alone its about $500.00 to $900.00do it soon as the longer you wait the more labor intensive it gets

Agitator drum is loose and making loud knocking noise

Hope this helps..The bearing has been worn out already connecting the drum..The washer might be too old or has been used frequently loading what is more than sufficient.loading excess more than its capacity..

I have a magic chef 20 lb capacity heavy duty washer model W20HN3S serial ME851474 with spin problems. Clothes come out soaking wet. Can I replace a belt?

If your washer will wash (agitate) your clothes but does not spin well, you will need to replace the "thrust bearing" in the washer. The repair is simple and will only take you a short to do. Here is a link to the "thrust bearing kit" you will need.

Drum bearings need replaced

you can try to replace just the bearings yourself .. big job but if you want to do it check out tonytool.

you can replace the entire drum assembly with bearings already in but the parts alone are over $500.

I have the same problem and will buy a new washer !

Replace bearing

You can try a puller but typically it is recommended to replace the entire rear outer tub half (which comes with the bearings already pressed into it). You will also need the tub seal that goes between the front and rear tub halves. Hope this helps.
